This year’s theme, “Unit, Empower, Act!” will provide attendees with the latest information on many issues from birth and early intervention to transition from high school, employment and improving the quality of life in the community. Please submit a proposal to be a part of this exciting event!

Participants will be a mixture of self-advocates, families, direct care staff, educators, managers and other professionals in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities. Therefore, proposals on any topic of interest to any of the groups represented are welcome, particularly a new approach or idea.
